Yalu River Bridge, Dandong

4.3
The New Yalu River Bridge is an unfinished road bridge across the Yalu River between Dandong, Liaoning Province, China, and Sinuiju, North Korea. It is a cable-stayed bridge, 3 km long including the supporting roads.Construction began in October 2011 and is mostly complete, but the project is stalled; North Korea has not built any roads connecting to its end of the bridge.OpeningThe New Yalu River Bridge was originally slated to be opened in October 2014, but due to delays on the North Korean side, the opening has been postponed indefinitely, as the bridge currently ends in a field outside of Sinuiju, North Korea. The bridge reportedly cost China $350 million USD to build.Intended as a replacement for the Sino-Korean Friendship Bridge, one of two other bridges in the area, it was to have been opened at the end of November 2015. All the border crossing staff and the tax station are to be transferred to the new bridge when/if it opens. There is very little activity connected with the bridge.
